Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png12.png Will be your main choice of summoner spells on top lane.

4.png14.png This is the main go-to for mid lane Irelia.

4.png1.png If you're playing against something with heavy CC (Liss, Annie, etc.) you can also take cleanse instead of ignite.

Masteries Back to Top

This is the standard Irelia mastery page.

Things you could swap:
Double edged sword for feast: This gives you a little more sustain in the laning phase rather than damage. (Best against lane bullies.)

Unyielding for recovery: This will give you hp over time instead of armor. Only use this when you want to go full glass-canon for some reason.

Battering blows and fervor of battle for swiftness and grasp of the undying: This is for when you are really afraid that you are going to get killed over and over again in lane.

Battering blows and fervor of battle for legendary guardian and grasp of the undying: This again is for when you are afraid you're going to get killed, but instead of tenacity you get some armor/mr.

For Irelia there's a few standard rules for upgrading abilities that, when followed, will lead to the good upgrading:
1. Upgrade your ult when you can
2. Take Q first against ranged champions / Take E first against melee champions.
3. Max your W against more tanky champions / Max your E against squishy champions.
4. Always max your Q last.

You can also just keep this upgrade order, I do it almost every game and it works perfectly fine.

Videos on how to use abilities are incoming soon!

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    This is the standard Irelia start.
    Start with this when you're playing against an AD lane bully.

Core Items

    go either rageblade > trinity; or trinity
    If you want more damage, these are the 3 best items.
    These are the 4 armor items you can get on Irelia.
    These are the magic resist items.
    These are 3 decent hp items for Irelia.

Situational Items

There's not a best build on Irelia, every game you want to swap your build around a little bit.

My preference is to get Trinity Force and go tank/damage depending on the game from that, but a common build is to get rageblade first. Both builds are good.

Deadman's Plate and Spirit Visage are probably the 2 best defensive items on Irelia.
Steraks is a good item if you want both damage and tankyness.

Most items are self explanatory, if you are not sure about an item, be sure to tell me!

VS

Aatrox

Easy

Aatrox is probably one of the easiest match ups there is. You can see him as the weak version of Irelia.

Recommended first ability max: W
Recommended summs: Flash/TP

VS

Ahri

Medium

Ahri has high damage with her Q: Orb of Deception, dodging this spell will allow you to kill her, but it's quite hard when everything is flying towards your head.

Recommended first ability max: E (even though I prefer W)
Recommended summoner spell: Flash/Ignite

VS

Akali

Easy

With the new Akali top meta this is one of the easiest matchups.

Recommended first ability max: W
Recommended summoner spells: Flash/TP

VS

Anivia

Easy

Anivia's only big treat is that she stuns you and then gets ult and E off on you, try to prevent this.

Recommended first ability max: W
Recommended summoner spells: Flash/Ignite or Flash/Cleanse

VS

Annie

Easy

Annie has high burst damage, this can easily be countered by getting a hexdrinker.

Recommended first ability max: E
Recommended summoner spells: Flash/Cleanse

VS

Aurelion Sol

Medium

I haven't played a single game into this champion yet, will get something soon.

VS

Azir

Medium

Azir will try to poke you heavily in the early game, rush a hexdrinker and let him push you in all the time, you can just farm under tower.

Recommended first ability max: W
Recommended summoner spells: Flash/Ignite

VS

Brand

Medium

Brand does a ton of burst damage, like he'll literally blow you up. Going an instant maw is recommended.

Recommended first ability max: E
Recommended summoner spells: Flash/Ignite or Flash/Cleanse

VS

Cassiopeia

Easy

if you don't allow her to dps you with her E you can OS her.

Recommended first ability max: W
Recommended summoner spells: Flash/Ignite

Irelia and I Back to Top

Hey I'm Me4rts, known in-game as BestIreliaEUNA on the EUW server. At the beginning of season 5 I started to play Irelia, and I played her a lot. After roughly 2 months I started to become a one trick on her and I still am. Currently I'm haunting the diamond 5 division with my crazy Irelia plays. I started playing Irelia because I saw a video from Gbay99, I thought Irelia was a champion that I would want to try, and oh god I'm glad I did. Irelia is a champion with everything: hard cc, counter cc, physical dmg, magic damage, true damage, tanky and most important she is a lot of fun to play.

Here's some of my stats:
